Abstract:In Uttar Pradesh, 30 percent of currently married women of reproductive age have an unmet need for family planning. The percentage of total need that is unmet is especially high among women who are Muslim, who live in rural areas, who are illiterate, whose husbands are illiterate, who belong to scheduled tribes, and who are not exposed to media messages on family planning.

The NFHS Subject Reports is a series summarizing secondary analysis of data from the 1992-93 National Family Health Survey (NFHS) in India. The NFHS collected information from nearly 90,000 Indian women on a range of demographic and health topics. Conducted under the auspices of the Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the survey provides national and state-level estimates of fertility, infant and child mortality, family planning practice, maternal and child health, and the utilization of services available to mothers and children. IIPS conducted the survey in cooperation with consulting organizations and 18 population research centers throughout India. The East-West Center and a U.S.-based consulting firm, Macro International, provided technical assistance, and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) provided financial support.
